"Andrew Lang's Fairy Books or Andrew Lang's "Coloured" Fairy Books are a twelve-book series of fairy tale collections. Although Andrew Lang did not collect the stories himself from the oral tradition, the extent of his sources (who had collected them originally), made them an immensely influential collection, especially as he used foreign-language sources, giving many of these tales their first appearance in English. As acknowledged in the prefaces, although Lang himself made most of the selections, his wife and other translators did a large portion of the translating and telling of the actual stories."

I love the Fairytale's and I will always love them ❤️😂

teaches homophobia and racysm

(4 Sterne)

Any book that isn't anti raycyst is pro raycyst. Similarly any book that is not pro gay is anti gay. Since there are no gay orgies in this book, it is homophobic. In the year 2021, I expect all children's stories to be filled with lots of gay sex. Also the stories are written with an air of systemic occidental centricism that unconsciously marginalizes BIPOCs This book is worse than Mein Kampf or anything written by Dr Suess
